2009, a brand new year, a brand new start. We all enjoy a new beginning for it gives us hope, hope in the future, hope in being a better person.
Since it’s that time again I’ll make the mandatory resolutions, my annual “To Do” list. I’ll eat better, exercise more and lose 10 (well it should be 15) pounds! As we all know, these vague promises rarely come to fruition. Maybe if I get more specific and outline a plan in writing, I’ll be more committed to it. However, I recently read a more important idea.
Instead of the yearly “TO DO” list this New Year, I’ll plan a “TO BE” list. This year I I resolve: to be kind, to be peaceful, to be loving, to be patient with others and myself, and to be focused on what’s really important in the day. If each of us will pick a quality we admire in someone else, and emanate that quality, we will improve the quality of life in those we touch.
Oh, and I will still work on my To Do list…maybe…as soon as the candy bowl at work is empty.
